What is the STOTT PILATES® Method?

STOTT PILATES is a con­tem­po­rary approach to the orig­i­nal exer­cise method pio­neered by the late Joseph Pilates. Co-founders Moira and Lind­say G. Mer­rithew, along with a team of phys­i­cal ther­a­pists, sports med­i­cine and fit­ness pro­fes­sion­als, have spent more than two decades refin­ing the STOTT PILATES method of exer­cise and equip­ment. This result­ed in the inclu­sion of mod­ern prin­ci­ples of exer­cise sci­ence and spinal reha­bil­i­ta­tion, mak­ing it one of the safest and most effec­tive meth­ods avail­able.

Why is Pilates the fastest-grow­ing method of exer­cise?

Peo­ple are becom­ing increas­ing­ly more inter­est­ed in fit­ness modal­i­ties that help relieve stress. They’re also much more inter­est­ed in pre­ven­tion and tak­ing care of their bod­ies. They want to stay fit and look good for as long as pos­si­ble. Pilates is com­ple­men­tary to many tra­di­tion­al ways of work­ing out. It’s excel­lent for all ages, fit­ness lev­els and goals. Its mind-body aspect is even said to be use­ful in pre­vent­ing stress-relat­ed ill­ness­es like heart dis­ease.

Can any­one do Pilates?

I have a bad back. Will I be able to do Pilates?

You should always con­sult your physi­cian before start­ing any fit­ness rou­tine. Pilates work­out is gen­tle and con­trolled with no sud­den jar­ring actions. It is more impor­tant, how­ev­er, that you work with a qual­i­fied instruc­tor to ensure that you are doing the move­ments cor­rect­ly. An expe­ri­enced instruc­tor will be able to mod­i­fy the exer­cis­es to accom­mo­date your lim­i­ta­tions, con­tin­u­al­ly chal­lenge you with­in your abil­i­ty, and mon­i­tor your improve­ments. If you com­mit your­self to a con­sis­tent work­out sched­ule you will cer­tain­ly feel results.

Should Pilates replace my reg­u­lar work­out?

STOTT PILATES exer­cise is a mus­cu­lo-skele­tal con­di­tion­ing pro­gram. It’s ide­al in com­bi­na­tion with some kind of car­dio­vas­cu­lar exer­cise. Walk­ing, run­ning, aer­o­bics, aqua fit­ness etc., A great com­ple­ment to your weight train­ing pro­gram or ath­let­ic train­ing.


In some respects Pilates is like Yoga. Both are con­sid­ered mind-body meth­ods of move­ment. Both empha­size deep breath­ing and smooth, long move­ments that encour­age the mind-body con­nec­tion. The dif­fer­ence is that while Yoga requires mov­ing from one sta­t­ic pos­ture to the next, Pilates flows through a series of move­ments that are more dynam­ic, sys­tem­at­ic and anatom­i­cal­ly-based incor­po­rat­ing resis­tance equip­ment. The goal with STOTT PILATES exer­cise is to strength­en the pos­tur­al mus­cles while achiev­ing opti­mal func­tion­al fit­ness.

Can Pilates help me lose weight? If so, how much?

Pilates can be a pos­i­tive addi­tion to your over­all weight-loss pro­gram. Weight loss occurs when the num­ber of calo­ries con­sumed is less than the num­ber of calo­ries expend­ed. The most suc­cess­ful and healthy way to achieve weight loss is an exer­cise plan that
includes an aer­o­bic com­po­nent cou­pled with a strength train­ing com­po­nent, such as STOTT PILATES exer­cise, and fol­low­ing a bal­anced diet. Com­bin­ing Pilates with aer­o­bic exer­cise also offers addi­tion­al ben­e­fits: greater mind-body con­nec­tion, improved pos­ture, flex­i­bil­i­ty and func­tion­al­i­ty.

Why do celebri­ties do Pilates?

Many celebri­ties choose Pilates because not only does it improve their phys­i­cal appear­ance, it also helps with their sta­mi­na, stress relief, and focus. Pilates is invig­o­rat­ing and helps peo­ple feel dis­tressed.
